In a 2-hour 'speech,' only one word matters.


As presentations go, some tend to be heavy on "motivation," but light on meat. Tons of volume, but no value. Anyone can make people excited to be in the room...Tim Kirkland makes them excited to get back to work.

Tim is a humorous, dynamic speaker who definitely brings the motivation...but is also laser-focused on the practical matter of delivering real, immediately useable tools that will have an impact on your business.

Tim's business savvy and experience are immediately apparent to attendees of his keynotes, workshops, and seminars. He is a proven, award-winning owner-operator, executive, and entrepreneur with a deep understanding of the unique challenges faced by the hospitality and customer service industries. He walks the talk and shares real tools for success. 


Nearly all of Tim's speaking clients invite him back for repeat appearances, with a significant percentage of those requesting back-to-back appearances. The reason is, Tim delivers easily understood, immediately applicable business solutions that deliver measurable, sustained results in the field.


Every keynote, workshop, breakout or seminar is intricately tailored to suit the culture, needs, goals, and expectations of each client. We take the time to get to know your brand, teams, products, and customers to deliver a highly customized and ultimately useful presentation.


We can research and develop presentations "from the ground up" based on your current business conditions and needs, or start with a template based on Tim's proven, best-selling content and go from there. Here are a few of our most popular, tried-and-true topics:
